Europe’s most prestigious ceramics festival is set to fire the imagination of art enthusiasts in Hatfield.
Internationally renowned ceramicists will display their work alongside innovative new talent at the 24th Art in Clay at Hatfield House this weekend.
The annual event will bring together a record number of more than 200 ceramic artists when it opens its doors on Friday, August 17 to Sunday, August 19.
Art in Clay showcases the finest ceramics currently being created by individual makers in the UK and Europe.
Show director Hannah Ault said: “Thanks to shows like The Great Pottery Throw Down, the world of ceramics is increasingly high profile.
“Art in Clay is a great introduction to the amazing world of contemporary ceramics as visitors can chat to the artists, learn from the experts and even try their own hand in the Clay Creation Zone.
“The ceramic art world is vibrant and thriving, and it is testament to the prestige of Art in Clay that for serious ceramics collectors it is a must-visit annual event.”
In addition to the 200 exhibitors showcasing their art, a full daily programme will include a host of activities.
Art in Clay is open from 10am to 5.30pm on Friday and Saturday, and from 10am to 5pm on Sunday, August 19.
